Johann Eyfells is a revolutionary sculptor who was an art professor at the University of Central Florida for over thirty years. He is known to many in Central Florida as the Grandfather of Sculpture. Born in 1923 in Reykjavik, Iceland, he earned a bachelor's degree in architecture in 1953 and later a master's degree in fine art in 1964. Johann began producing abstract sculptures in the 1960's based on his experiments in chemistry and physics, utilizing the various transformational properties of metals, especially aluminum, iron and copper. He has received much recognition throughout his career including an invitation from the government of Iceland to represent his homeland at the 45th Venice Biennale and inclusions in the 9-museum traveling exhibition "What Nature Provides" and the United Nations' "World Artists at the Millenium". Eyefells currently resides in Texas. Visit him online at: www.eyfellsandeyfells.com.
